Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Leaders Jibe Amongst Each Other More to Addressing PeopleAnusha Sathish (Author) Published Date : May 03, 2019 10:00 IST
Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi prove equally competent in jibing at each other. There were altogether 20 complaints filed by the Congress party towards Narendra Modi for infringing the model code of conduct. By the same token, BJP complained about NDA and the most highlighted complaints are “chowkidar chor hai” towards Rafale deal and “tribals can be shot at”. Also, Gujarat court has summoned Rahul Gandhi today in a criminal defamation suit for spelling “Why all criminals have Modi as a surname?” He has taken the names of Narendra Modi, Lalit Modi and diamontaire Nirav Modi. The complaint has been made by the MLA of BJP Purnesh Modi (incidentally Modi surname again). Also, Rahul Gandhi exasperatedly snorted that chowkidar Narendra Modi queued up in Anil Ambani’s and Nirav Modi’s house.
During the campaign in Amethi, Priyanka Gandhi was shocked to see profanity popped up, where a bunch of children recited anti-Modi and congress-friendly slogans. Again it is not advisable to let it go as a senior political leader but she reacted promptly that “this is not a nice one and be a good child”. It is applaudable. Congress complained about Narendra Modi’s hate speech and armed forces use for political campaign. Also, the inactiveness from ECI tacitly endorsed the favouritism. Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu today lashed out at BJP saying that chowkidar chor hai. The repercussions are expected to be huge as this statement has already taken a toll with the Congress President Rahul Gandhi and apology statements are whirl winding.
The election commission has started giving clean chit for Modi one by one for his remarks. “Nuclear weapons are not meant for Diwali” and “minority is majority” comments do not violate the model code of conduct stated Election commission. Everyone is dubious on what for the campaign is conducted? To compete with policies for the welfare of the public or complain between each other as the political arena is duopoly with no options in hand for the public. This can be answered only by the public.
